    I was finishing cutting dovetails for a tangential toolholder to fit a QCTP. A pending trip popped into my mind just when I was taking my final cut, ##!!. Oversized it. I'm still upset with my self and at my age I ought to know, always have a one track mind for only what your machining. Well being retired a guess I have time for a due-over.

    Make two at the same time this tone if they both make it so the way to finish I'll take one. I've been wanting one myself & would even give you one of my stories for it. Lol

    Can you just oversize it a bit more & make a shim to weld in it?

    Brass Build up might work.
